Ultimately, it’s competent, but without the systems or story being on the same level as the aesthetic Seasons After Fall will soon fade from memory.

Overall Seasons After Fall is a fun game to play. Though there are some issues that I ran into, I did enjoy playing it and getting wrapped up in the story was good enough to continue pressing forward.

This is a very relaxing and visually outstanding game, which most of you, fans of peaceful 2D adventures will immediately fall in love with. Those looking for combat and fast paced combat though, will be left disappointed if going to play this game with that in mind.

Overall, Seasons After Fall is a gorgeous, quite relaxing combat-free puzzle/platformer on PlayStation 4. While its trophy list is easy, there is no Platinum trophy in sight. It makes sense since this is a beautiful and fun but short experience. After playing the game, I certainly hope the developer decides to revisit the concept either with some DLC content (as was the case for Never Alone, a PS4 indie gem from E-Line Media), or perhaps by giving us a sequel!

Offering a unique style of gameplay with the ability to control the seasons, and a lovely artistic style that other games only dream of having, this is one that fans of platformers everywhere need to experience.

Seasons After Fall is an acceptable indie title that is made by a small group of developers. Its scenes are very beautiful like they are drawn by hand. It has good gameplay ideas but it’s not challenging for old-school platformer gamers. However, Seasons After Fall will not disappoint you.

On the whole, I would recommend Seasons After Fall to anyone looking for another pretty indie platformer. Seasons After Fall certainly holds its own (minus the glitches) against other favorites within the genre, but doesn’t do enough to truly surpass its counterparts. Still, it can be quite calming and engaging for a short period of time and is certainly worth the playthrough for anyone looking for a new platformer.

For a 2D puzzle-platformer, the levels are naturally integrated into the environment – and one of the most naturally integrated that I have ever seen in any game of the same genre. Utilizing the changing seasons to its advantage, Seasons After Fall feels less like a traditional platformer and more like an innovation, jumping from tree branch to vine, frozen geyser to snowball, all the while bending the seasons to your command. The narrative and setting aren’t built around the level design, but rather the design enhances the narrative and setting, allowing for a gorgeous and immersive experience.

Seasons after Fall is beautiful game that exists to dazzle you with handcrafted imperfect art and animation. This is an experience that isn’t for everyone, as some gamers feel their time is better spent in a more perfect art like Child of Light or Abzû. However, for those that fall in love with imperfection, this game is the perfect addition to your library.

It has been an amazing year for games in 2017 thus far, with huge releases such as Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Horizon Zero Dawn just to name a few. A large majority of these big releases have something in common, in that they all feature extensive storylines in a massively open world. While it may be a blast to explore the vastness of space or the impressive landscape of Hyrule, sometimes I need a game that gives me a smaller more focused experience. This is the exact reason I absolutely adored the time I spent with Seasons After Fall.

Seasons After Fall is a gorgeous year-round romp through the forest that will pull at the heartstrings on more than one occasion. Every season brings fun and different dynamics to the game, complemented superbly by the soundtrack. Some puzzles and load times may frustrate, but they're not enough to detract from the overall charm and enjoyment of the game.

Seasons After Fall is a great looking and very charming puzzle/platformer with a bit of a Metroidvania thing going on. It might be short, but it's definitely fun from start to finish. It's a relaxing experience that allows you to explore beautiful hand-painted locations that come to life as you change from season to season. The puzzles are fun and never feel overwhelming, which is always a plus for this type of game. If you're looking for a solid puzzle/platformer on PS4, then give Seasons After Fall a try!

Seasons After Fall has been out for some time on the PC and is only recently made its way over to the consoles. Being woken up by a soft female voice, you'll be taking control of "the seed" as it possesses a nearby fox in order to traverse the lengths and depths of the forest in order to perform the ritual of the seasons.

Warning... the following is entirely the opinion of the author, and in no way reflects the opinion of agononline.com, or its affiliates. It has taken me a while to write anything lately. To my four fans, including my mother, I want to apologize. I've been wallowing in the mire of this US presidential election. It has eaten my core, like a fat, secretly racist caterpillar, until I just want to drink and pray for death. In the last debate, one candidate had no idea that Russia detonated its first nuclear weapon in 1949, describing them as being new to nuclear technology. My inner nerd cried. This is one of our options.

In the end, Seasons After Fall is another great platformer that places value in puzzles and dexterity over combat. The puzzles don't feel overly difficult, but their execution is done well. The same can be said for the season changes, where it becomes very obvious which season needs to be used, but it feels satisfying anyway. It feels like a game for those just starting out in the genre, but the presentation is so well done that more experienced gamers won't mind giving it a spin. If you have an afternoon to spend on a game, Seasons After Fall will make that time feel worthwhile.

The powers of the seasons are also great although the puzzles weren’t challenging enough and didn’t utilize them properly. If you feel like having a good time without thinking too much, I would definitely recommend it. However, if you’re looking for a challenge, this might not be the game for you.

Seasons After Fall is a beautiful piece of interactive art. The design and sound are all executed flawlessly and are a genuine joy to behold. Swing Swing Submarine has really set the bar high for indie game production values. Sadly, the game does begin to feel slightly repetitive and some more puzzle elements - and especially new locations - would have been most welcome. As it stands, Seasons After Fall is a very pleasing and competent puzzle platform attempt, which, although short, will leave most players more than satisfied.

Seasons After Fall is a wonderful platform adventure that uses the ability to change seasons perfectly, with some cleverly thought-out areas that are small at first, but smartly open up considerably when rotating through Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. With gorgeous visuals, and a wonderful soundtrack, plus powerful voice work, the only thing that holds this back is the aimless wandering that creeps in towards the latter stages, thanks to the lack of a map feature.

Seasons After Fall is a beautifully crafted adventure title that changes the gameplay mechanics of a traditional platformer with the use of the four seasons. The story is simple, although the ambiguity of it all works in its favour, as the mysteries slowly come to light. While a few flaws creep into the latter part of the adventure, and there is some repetitive exploration, this is a great title for fans of the puzzle-platforming genre looking for another way to pass a few hours.

I wish I wasn't so down on Seasons After Fall. It's a great looking game, and I really enjoyed being in that world. However, after about twenty minutes, that novelty starts to wear off and I found myself asking "What more is there to this?", to which the answer seems to be "not much". There are definitely worse platformers out there, and I certainly didn't hate my time playing it, but Seasons After Fall could, and should, have been so much more than what it is.
